This was a most enjoyable story. The female reader has a pleasant voice and reads very well. The only minor flaw is that there were a few stumbles and repeated words that should have been edited out. But that's nitpicking. All in all well done.

5 Stars - a Favorite
This is one of my favorites.
NCIS, CIS and Bones rolled into one old London mystery.
The story surrounds the disappearance of a well to do Egyptologist. He vanishes without notice. He also has created a bizarre will, which is a big part of the mystery.
Dr. Thorndyke, a lawyer and a doctor, is probably the first pathologist detective. This story uses some very interesting forensics techniques to solve the mystery.
